Descrição da editora

The original how-to manual for handling the German tank in World War II, edited and translated by the Emmy Award-winning historian and author.
 
During the Second World War, Tiger tank crews had to be trained as quickly and effectively as possible. To assist in this process General Heinz Guderian authorized the publication of the Tigerfibel, the illustrated manual which was issued to Tiger I crews from 1943 onwards. This highly unorthodox publication was full of risqué drawings and humorous illustrations and was designed to convey complex battlefield instructions in a simple and memorable manner.
 
This unique primary source has now been translated into English by Emmy Award-winning historian Bob Carruthers and published with a new overview and introduction. It makes for indispensable reading for anyone interested in tank warfare in World War II. The manual contains everything the reader could ever wish to know concerning how the crews were instructed to handle the Tiger I under combat conditions, including detailed instructions on aiming, firing, ammunition and close combat. There are extensive sections on maintenance, driving, radio operation and the essentials of commanding the heavy tank.
 
This priceless information is now being made available to a wider English-speaking audience as an electronic publication for the first time. Fascinating and highly accessible, the Tigerfibel is essential and rewarding reading for all those interested in the history of this famous tank.
 
This book is part of the Hitler’s War Machine series which draws on primary sources and contemporary documents to provide a new insight into the true nature of Hitler’s Wehrmacht.
